"One of the biggest things about avalanche education is communication," says Bruce Edgerly, co-founder of Backcountry Access (BCA). Next fall, BCA will debut their new BC Link, a two-way radio designed for backcountry skiing and riding. It has more battery power and more range than your average two-way radio and it hooks conveniently to your backpack strap to make communicating with your partners in the backcountry even easier.
